It's been 9 months!
There are so many things I love about this joyful creature.
I love her love-affair with food.
She is captivated by it. and I'm pretty sure she doesn't love anything as much as she loves a plate full of fresh strawberries.
I love when she finds her thumb.
It's not very often that it happens but it's adorable.
I love how active she is.
She is starting to crawl like a mad woman (do mad-woman crawl?) and gets into anything (especially if food is involved). She knows what she wants and how to get it - which is exhausting, I mean good - truly a must-have tactic in the Archer house. :)
I love how she gravitates towards her sisters and follows them everywhere. She sure looks up to them both so much. I can tell she can't wait to run with them. It won't be long.
I love how sweet and easy going she is. She is active, but she also goes with the flow. I love that about her so much.
I love watching her kick her legs like crazy in the baby swing. I love her chunky but perfect body in her swim-suit. Kills me every time.
I love how she loves her daddy. She laughs and smiles the minute he walks through the door. holy cuteness.
I love kissing her soft squishy cheeks. The faces ones (though her bum-cheeks are equally soft and squishy...just not as kiss-worthy).
I love that she is ours.
